Mandatory E Scrap Recycling

Post date: Jan 10, 2013 3:25:13 PM

Effective January 24, 2013, the Pennsylvania Covered Devices Recycling Act of 2010 (CDRA) requires the mandatory recycling of covered items. Covered items include televisions, monitors, laptops over 5", computers, printers, keyboards and any other computer peripheral devices. The Streets & Sanitation Department will not be able to collect these items beginning on January 24th as the items are banned from landfill disposal. Below is useful information from Westmoreland Cleanways (www.westmorelandcleanways.org) including locations where the covered devices may be dropped off for free.
